Dwayne Johnson, the former WWE superstar and now Hollywood A-list actor, once shared an embarrassing story from his teenage years about losing his virginity.
In a candid interview with Playboy Magazine in 2005, Dwayne Johnson revealed that he lost his virginity in a park in the middle of the night at the age of 14. Comparing it to losing his “movie virginity” when he appeared in The Scorpion King, he said,
“Losing my screen virginity pales in comparison with the real thing. I was 14, in a park in the middle of the night, and right before I was going to show her why they call me the Rock, a cop car appeared, the red light came on, and it was horribly embarrassing.”
Despite the embarrassing nature of the story, Johnson is now a highly successful actor. His breakout role was as The Scorpion King in 2001, which earned him $5.5 million, and he has gone on to appear in a variety of high-profile films and TV shows, such as Jumanji, Fast & Furious, Hobbs and Shaw, and Ballers.
That Wasn’t Dwayne Johnson’s Only Teenage Embarrassment
Though Johnson has since moved on to a successful career in Hollywood, his teenage years were not without their embarrassing moments. In the same interview, Johnson also recalled an incident where he was trying to take two girls to a prom but wound up alone in his room with a copy of Juggs magazine.
It is clear that Johnson has come a long way since his teenage years and is now living his wildest dreams. He is happily married to Lauren Hashian since 2019, and the couple have two daughters, Jasmine Johnson and Tia Johnson, both of whom were born prior to Dwayne and Lauren marrying.
Johnson also has another daughter with his first wife Dani Garcia, Simone Johnson, who has followed in her father’s footsteps in the wrestling business and currently competes in NXT as Ava Raine.
